Kingstone Press Round 18 Match Preview – Workington Town v Bradford Bulls

These two sides form couldn’t be any different coming into this game. Bulls come in on a 15 match unbeaten streak while Town haven’t won since victory over Whitehaven at the Summer bash almost a month ago with 2 defeats and a dramatic draw against Dewsbury.

Last time out
Town welcomed Featherstone and it was a repeat of the away tie for Town with them scoring no points and conceding a bucket load, only 52 on this occasion though compared to the 72 they conceded down in West Yorkshire.

Bradford scored 22 points and just got past a Dewsbury side with were gutted not to grab the victory at osdal, despite the victory Bulls coach James Lowes labeled his sides performance as “rubbish”

Key battle
The key battle was looking to be in the halves when Town announced earlier this week they had signed Jarrod Sammut from Wakefield but his involvement playing an international game from Malta rules him out. But the halves always play a part with the short pitch at Zebra Claims stadium and the bulls will be looking to make sure they are on top from the start.

I don’t normally like to rule out of a victory before kick off but Town will need a miracle in this one – Bulls by 38
